You know your frame from your packet. You can explain how bridging tables are populated. Ethernet is your friend from as far back as 100 meg half duplex regularly plagued your life.
Wireless? Not so much. You know some stuff, but maybe a big wireless project just landed in your lap and you’re feeling a little overwhelmed. What you need is a crash course. A primer.
On today’s episode, we explore how to do a new wireless deployment when you’re a wired, not a wireless, expert.
Our guest is Robert Boardman, a solution and sales engineer for Mist Systems. This is not a sponsored podcast, we’re just tapping Robert’s expertise.
We roam through a variety of topics including:
- Gathering user and technical requirements, including the physical location and clients
- Understanding the RF environment
- Channel management
- How to choose the right APs and whether all your APs should come from the same vendor
- Controller and cloud architectures
- Post-installation validation and operation
